MOSCOW (AP) — Russian police say that a drunken man has commandeered an armored vehicle and crashed it into a store's window in northwestern Russia, hurting no one.

Traffic police said in a statement carried by state news agency Tass that the incident happened Wednesday in the city of Apatity in the Murmansk region on the Arctic Kola Peninsula.

Police said the man commandeered the armored personnel carrier from a local driving school that teaches driving skills to future army conscripts. They said the tracked armored vehicle was stripped of weapons.

The man drove the heavy vehicle into the city, where he first collided with a parked car and then drove into a grocery store's window. No one was hurt.

Police said they detained the man and found him to be drunk.
